TiVo joins Roku in Hulu Plus support
In sync with Roku's plans, TiVo today said it would add Hulu Plus to the TiVo Premiere series. Both the regular and XL versions of the DVR will have the option of using the $10 subscription service. The update should roll out sometime over the "coming months."
TiVo's boxes have already had access to multiple Internet video services, such as Amazon VOD and Netflix, but have been limited to pay-per-download or else subscriptions to an older and usually restricted library of material. Hulu Plus gives access to TV shows just after their episodes first air as well as wider TV catalogs than what Netflix can offer.
